The legendary Spice Girls are to reunite to make a sequel to their film Spice World, according to a source who told The Sun.
Geri Horner (Ginger Spice), Melanie C (Sport Spice), Mel Burton (Scary Spice), and Emma Bunton (Baby Spice) have reportedly approached a top screenwriter to produce a sequel to their 1997 film, to celebrate 25 years since the release of their first film.
It is even claimed that the project is the brainchild of Geri Halliwel, who left the band in 1998, two years before the group split up. Halliwel, now under the name of wife Geri Horner, manages the band and is said to have contacted a screenwriter herself.
Melanie C, Emma Bunton and Mel B are said to be involved and they were hoping that Victoria Beckham (Posh Spice) would join them. Indeed, during the Spice Girls’ recent performances such as the opening ceremony of the 2012 Olympic Games or a 13-date tour across the UK and Ireland in 2019, the designer preferred to focus on her family and her business.
Melanie C said last January that she thinks Victoria Beckham is “coming around” to the idea of rejoining the Spice Girls.
Released in 1997, Spice World, directed by Bob Spiers, featured the singers in their own roles in the run-up to a major concert at the Royal Albert Hall, but they didn’t take themselves too seriously.
A few guest stars appeared, including Elton John, Meat Loaf and Elvis Costello, as well as Roger Moore and Hugh Laurie. The film was a great success, despite mixed reviews.
